The prevalence of mobile communication gadgets makes it possible for users to download and register on limitless sites.

Step forward Skout. A social media application that facilitates the interaction of users all around the world. The Skout Company developed and programmed this platform in 14 languages and now boasts of a user profile from 180 countries. The Skout website operates more or less like a typical social media site where a user signs up and provides their bio-data. A user also provides accurate customization information such as personal tastes and preferences used in searching for friends with common interests. Skout automatically links with a user’s facebook and email account.The Skout mobile application is available on App Store and Google Play.

Skout is now one of the fastest growing social media application in the world. Like all other social media, applications is widely being used by teenagers and young adults. A close social examination reveals that teenage years are that period of self-development. Social relationships continue to grow, and Skout has therefore become a platform for expanding social circles. A significant percentage of teenagers are users on Skout. However, parents are less likely to lose sleep over their children’s indulgence in the app since its rated one of the safest dating sites for teens.

The growth of social media has led to the erosion of some fundamental values, norms, and etiquette. Globalization and the influence of celebrities take the blame for it. The developers of Skout have laid down the law and discouraged anti-social behavior by banning the sharing of graphic, nude or semi-nude images. The site also profiles, groups and places users in respective age groups. Teenage users have their circles while adults in their late twenties have autonomous circles. Ideas and the general context of information, therefore, remain within a peer group.

The company just recently launched another exciting app known as Fuse. It allows users to create their social circles with an insider network. The new app is also gaining popularity with about 1.5 million users registered per month.

Skout to Launch New App Fuse

Skout is a social networking application that has been in developed for the better of the past three years. Though the app isn’t a house hold name yet, on the same wave length as something like Facebook or Instagram, it is still shaking up the foundation for users who love to socially connect on the digital platforms. At the time of this writing Skout has already connected over 500 million people in almost 200 countries. The app itself is almost misleadingly simple but it attacks a niche that has been surprisingly ignored by other developers: connecting strangers to one another. Creating friendships is harder the older you get so it was nice to see the people at Skout take a swing at the task.

What is Skout?
Skout on huffingtonpost is also the name of the company behind the popular app. The company was founded in 2007 by Christian Wiklund and Nik Lindstrom. A few years later their self titled app got some serious investment cash flow and this allowed them to push the app on a whole new level. We quickly saw Wiklund and Lindstrom hire developers to gear up the release of their app. Before long it hit the market and has since been growing.

Skout is a simple iOS app that is completely free to download. It initially started out on the internet but transitioned over to mobile usage, presumably so that it didn’t compete with Facebook and Twitter and the like. The app is made profitable by in app purchases as well as customer engagement through advertisements. Users can perform various actions on the app and it requires them to use their ‘points’. Not unlike ‘gems’ or what have you in game apps, these points are made with the intent to get users to keep on purchasing them to do more activities.

Registration on Skout is easy as you have the option to link to your Facebook account. Once inside of Skout all you need to know are a few basic engagement techniques. The home page is grid after grid of online profiles with their pictures displayed which makes the aesthetic very easy on the eyes. You tap a users profile image in order to bring up a list of options and from there you can begin to create actual relationships. The goal here is to contact people you never would have otherwise and to start propagating real fruitful friendships and relationships.

Skout to launch Fuse.
Fuse is a change of pace from the relative anonymity that the Skout app offers. This app works via your cell phone contact list and it cannot be used unless you know the phone number of the person you want to contact. Fuse is like a mixture of conventional texting, group chatting, and Snapchatting. You create a message or take a picture and then set a ‘time limit’ on it.
